Bristol Zoo uses infrared bullet and dome cameras to study animals

Comments Off on Bristol Zoo uses infrared bullet and dome cameras to study animals

An UK zoo has deployed a system featuring infrared bullet and dome cameras to observe a range of mammals, birds and reptiles as part of a BBC documentary, a recent news report has been able to reveal.

Bristol Zoo has teamed up with Icon Films, who wanted to record animals in total darkness to study their nocturnal behaviour and required high-quality night-time footage from equipment that would not disturb the creatures.

The animals in the study included seals, lions, gorillas, monkeys and zebras. Naturalists were investigating to see whether animals dream, how marine mammals manage to sleep while in the water and why flamingos sleep with one eye open.

An HD IP CCTV system consisting of bullet cameras, domes and Network Video Recorders (NVRs) was set up to monitor the animals over a 2-month period.

CCTV Surveillance offers a wide range of digital cameras available in various types and sizes (from Digital CCTV Bullet Cameras to Infra-red CCTV Cameras), but also quite an extensive range of DVRs. It’s important to point out that all of the DVRs supplied by CCTV Surveillance support long-term, continuous high quality digital CCTV recording, being able to securely store footage for several CCTV cameras found on the network.

Additionally, the company’s CCTV systems are designed to fully integrate with computer systems running CCTV Surveillance’s dedicated CCTV software, which makes it easier to integrate and control a large number of cameras from a single location.
